Melted Crayon Backrounds + A Video Tutorial

Hi everyone! It's Lindsay here from Crafting While Caffeinated Blog and YouTube Channel and I am super excited to share today's video tutorial with all of you! I LOVE when I can find new ways to use things I already own and today's technique does just that. All you need is old crayons, a cheese grater and an iron. Yes, I know, it's an odd combination. But with these tools you can create some fun and colorful melted crayon backgrounds! Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for all the details!

For tips and tricks on this technique, be sure to watch the video above. But let me take you through a quick run down of each project!

My first card is more of a grungy theme. I used an orange, olive green, and purple crayons to create the background. And to finish the card I used a fun hugs die along with the Large Peony and Small Peony stamps from the shop!

On my second card I really wanted a more muted background so I went with coral, light pink, and gold crayons. The metallics add some fun texture! To finish this card I used one of my favorite stamps the Rose Trio and a Get Well sentiment!

My final card is actually a set, but I only had to do the technique one time! Be sure to watch the video to see how easy it is to create two melted crayon backgrounds at once! For these backgrounds, I used a rainbow of colors for a nice bright look. I added the Hello Crafty Friends sentiment to both finished cards.

And before I go, I have to remind you that all Copic Markers, yes COPICS, and stencils are on sale for 30% off! You have until the end of this month to take advantage of the sale!!

I hope you all enjoyed a look at this fun technique and will make your own melted crayon backgrounds! If you are interested in any of the stamps I used on my cards today, you can find them all listed and linked down below. Until next time, happy crafting!!
